What is the casement window

The casement window basically has two fixed points, which are generally combined with the window frame by a hinge and rotated by the window glass to open. It can be divided into two types: side opening window and hanging window. The side opening window is opened horizontally. It is generally used for the main window with larger area, and is rotated to the left or right. The hanging window is opened vertically, and is pushed up or down, and is mostly used for ventilation in a kitchen, a room, and the like. There are also new type of casement windows that allow for two-way opening.
The advantages of the casement window are: large area, good sealing, sound insulation, heat preservation and impermeability, excellent safety and anti-theft performance, and convenient cleaning.
The disadvantage is that it takes up more space, so if the space is small or not enough, it is not suitable for the casement window. Moreover, the window width is small, and the visibility of the field of view is limited. It also takes up space outside the wall and is easily damaged. If the quality of the product is not enough, leakage may occur.
